It started while we were doing laundry this week. One of our readers got in touch regarding how Connecting Rooms is making her feel uncomfortable. I can't go into detail into what exactly made her uncomfortable, dear readers, as it falls under Spoilers. A couple of our First Readers (during the pre-publishing phase) also mentioned… Continue reading Uncomfortable Conversations
